Dynasty needed a change HK needed a dynasty -- bread and butter make buttered bread. which is quite delicious if you ask me.

I'm not saying the move didn't make sense, but I am saying I don't like it. They looked best with JT on their backs....

No sir, I don't like it. Was hoping eclipse or dye would pick them up. Big name company for a big name team. Should be a good decision for HK, but I still don't like it. This will push HK to make more products tho I hope.

I'm pretty sure the KLR is a type of Raza jersey, not 100 tho.

That can't be what it is referring to since Raza is a direct competitor with HK.

This is a small company that came from nowhere, created a culture and flourished and NOW is a major sponsor promoting and growing the tournament scene. They are well connected to Dynasty and this is a logical business progression for them. As far as Dynasty goes, this ain't their first rodeo. Those boys have negotiated more deals in the last 12 years than 75% of PbNation will ever. At the end of the day, Dynasty will do what it feels is in the best interest of the team and their survival, survival being the key word. How many other self sufficient, non factory teams are playing today that were playing 10 years ago ???
LOL, hipsters are usually the ones supporting HK.

I think a lot of the hate HK receives has little or nothing to do with the HK Army guys themselves. Mainly, at least for me and a lot of people ive talked to, its the little kids who worship them and repeatedly give paintball a horrible name because they are too focused on fitting in and being a cool kid than bettering their game or even bothering to learn correctly. I would like to point out that the HK Army guys have come a long ****ing way from where they were a couple years ago and have subsequently changed my opinion of them, still hate most of the followers though because they did not change along with HK.

Also, anyone have an idea what is going to happen for masks, loaders and paint? GI seems to be the logical option for masks and paint and Virtue for loaders. I'm calling BS on the HK mask and loader until a rep comes in and winks or something lol.

Anyone surprised that HK can afford to sponsor Dynasty? I'd be impressed if they could offer more than Empire... Or maybe Dynasty is just settling for less in hopes of boosting the sales and awareness of HK.

I could be completely wrong, just a thought though.

Well maybe they won't make an HK loader, but HK could work with Virtue to make an HK shell. I remember reading that Virtue was looking for other companies to make options for the Spire. Just a thought.

I thought of this as well. Really surprised me PE didnt pull the "We will beat any offer given by another company" card.

Well a lot of people don't realize that the Kressin brothers own more than just the HK branding. They are also successful promoters, so far I have seen two separate tours that they have put together and promoted. I'm sure it wasn't the first ones or the last.

I suspect that Planet eclipse wanted to sign them to a longer contract, and that is why they decided to shy away from it. I see Dynasty moving to either
DLX or Macdev next year. Just my thoughts.

PE and Dynasty seem to have an extremely healthy relationship. Id be willing to bet they stay with them for their markers.

Then again, I would have also bet they would stay with Empire a week ago lol.

What makes you think Kee didn't pull the plug? Have they said for sure who decided to end the relationship between Kee and Dynasty?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
